I'll be it's impossible to get more car for less money than this 2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG. With towering performance, bulletproof reliability, incomparable luxury, and a shockingly affordable price, it's a way to become an A-list celebrity without quitting your day job. These cars were unbeatable on the Autobahns, featuring a supercharged DOHC V8 engine that cranked out 469 horsepower. The redesigned SL had a predatory look, sleeker and more aggressive than the car they replaced, and with the AMG body kit, it's sinister and purposeful. If this car charges up in your rear-view mirror at triple-digit speeds, you MOVE. This one has been nicely maintained and shows you what you got for nearly $120,000 in 2003: glossy black paint, impeccable build quality, and an understated elegance that only the most expensive cars can wear. There's a deeper front spoiler with three intakes (painted red just for effect) along with some deeper side skirts and the all-important "V8 Kompressor" badges on the front fenders. Out back, you don't need a wing but you do get quad exhaust tips that rumble with the best V8 soundtrack this side of a Hemi 'Cuda, along with some additional red details that make this particular AMG stand out. This is a car that gets noticed for all the right reasons. The interior is exceptional, featuring comfortable gray leather buckets and top-shelf materials throughout. There's very, very little wear, a testament to the quality of the workmanship and the care this car has received, and aside from the usual AMG treatment, it's still the wonderful SL you know and love. The fat steering wheel frames a set of high-tech looking dials in their own custom binnacle, the wood trim is real wood, and every feature known to man was standard, including climate control, power windows, locks, mirrors, and seats, and a powerful AM/FM/CD/navigation system in the center of the dash. The seats are a little more aggressive in AMG trim, there's some extra aluminum trim on the dash, and there's low-reflection Alacantara trim on the top of the dash. The folding hardtop is still a mechanical ballet for which you could charge an admission fee and the trunk is neatly finished with plush carpets that are nicer than those in your living room. The Germans don't mess around when it comes to high-end 2-seat luxury cars. But the real reason this car is special is the 5.4 liter supercharged V8 living under the hood. At just 1500 RPM, it's already making 369 pounds of torque and with 516 pounds at full song, there aren't many cars made today that can hang with it on the roll. There's hair-trigger response to throttle inputs, and you'll probably find yourself flying along at speeds far greater than expected until you recalibrate the seat of your pants to this car's extraordinary abilities. It's limited to 155 MPH, but there are unrestricted cars in Europe that will power past 200 MPH, so you know this one has the oats. The 5-speed automatic transmission is a worthy companion, always smooth but ready to downshift and put the V8 into the sweet spot on its power curve to dispatch the pesky Mustang next to you. Brakes are massive vented discs that you'll be happy to have, and the calipers have been painted red to add some sparkle. The underside is used but not abused or modified, and certainly not rusty, which is partly why this one is so affordable. Gorgeous 18-inch wheels fill the fenders and carry staggered 225/40/18 front and 285/35/18 rear Continental performance radials. Complete with maintenance records, this is one heck of a bang for the buck. If you've dreamed of A-list performance, it's finally within financial reach. Call today!
